    Amazing pediatric neurosurgeon. On our first visit to him he worked wonders. when my son was experiencing bad headaches from his shunt and other neurosurgeons didnt seem to have a concern Dr. Kanev had him in for surgery the next morning. 7 years later and his headaches have not returned. We cant thank him enough for all he does and his dedication to his patients.
